Transient - Be EP [mtk145]


Published


First things first - American artist Transient's 'Over The River And Through The Woods' on the One netlabel was probably our favorite netlabel release of 2004 - gorgeous laidback electronics that deserve approximately a million listens. And, since we loved the 'Ancient EP' he put out on Monotonik a couple of years back, we asked him nicely for an exclusive new EP for us. So he delivered, and now we have the beautifully mixed-up melodics of the puntastically titled 'Be EP'.

Starting out, we have 'Ice', a great stepping-off point for the experience, with pin-sharp percussion and dreamy melodies firmly to the fore. Then we get gratifyingly choppy, with 'Pinocchio Jazzhands' a strutting, funky electronic melange. A brief pause, with 'Treelighting Ceremony...' and its constant ambient waves, and 'The Triumphant Return Of The Vigorous Chipmunk' blasts up a continuation of a theme on Transient's last Monotonik EP with aplomb. Finally, 'Ace' provides a counterpoint for 'Ice' and ends things off in style, all pulsing, almost Steve Reich-tinged swirling, repeating melodies with strange, wondrous complexity - marvellous.
